Joyce H. Dossett Dies At Age 81

Joyce Dossett

Joyce Dossett died peacefully in the trust and care of the Trustbridge Hospice Foundation on Monday, Oct. 15.

Dossett was a resident of Loxahatchee since 2003. She was born Dec. 27, 1936 in Miami, the middle child of 11 children of Charles and Rosa Jenkins. Dossett had many jobs throughout her lifetime, the most important ones to her being a good wife and mother. She also traveled throughout the United States with her husband through his military service and after retirement by motor home.

Dossett was predeceased by her beloved husband James just two years ago. In addition, she leaves behind her children, Ronda Frank of Royal Palm Beach and Angela Twomey (Sean) of Royal Palm Beach. Grandchildren include Michelle Garcia (Frankie) of San Antonio, Texas; Sean Twomey (Kaitlin) of Palm Beach Gardens; and Chris Twomey of Royal Palm Beach. Dossett also leaves surviving siblings Gene Jenkins (Pat) and Gary Jenkins (LuJean).

More than anything else, she enjoyed any time spent with her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed working with her orchids and the many various plants she cared for in her yard. Always thankful for the life the military provided her family, Dossett requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the USO.

In addition, the family also offered Trustbridge Hospice Foundation (5300 East Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33407) for a donation in Dossett’s name as thanks for the respect and care they provided.
